Tragicomic gem about two aging writers, Hirst and Spooner. After meeting on Hampstead Heath, they return home for a late-night session of witty banter, sinister power games, and the worship of alcohol, watched by Hirst’s henchman, Briggs and Foster. This haunting play is part mystery drama, part homage to the ghosts of the past and the fiction of memory.
